Sara's question is about the mechanical role of the anisotropy of actomyosin. She's co-supervised by Alice Nicolas (LTM) and Grégoire Michaux (IGD Rennes) and will use both in vitro (monolayers in nanofrabricated environments) and in vivo (C. Elegans) systems to investigate this.

During his PhD thesis, jointly directed with Pierre in the applied math laboratory in Grenoble, Mahamar Dicko has developed a numerical method in order to solve flows occuring along curved deformable surfaces of the space.
Preliminary work is described in Mahamar Dicko's poster (in French, poster prize at SMAI conference 2013).
This novel method is implemented as an extension of the rheolef finite element software.
Among the applications, we will focus on the mechanics of Drosophila germ band extension in collaboration with the group of Benedicte Sanson in the University of Cambridge, see our PLOS Computational Biology paper.
